SAP AWS training is available in Mumbai

Posted on: Dec 4, 2020

Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS) io2 volumes are now supported for SAP workloads.

io2 volumes have 99.999% durability and support provisioning 500 IOPS for every GB provisioned. This means that customers with io2 get 100 times better volume durability and a 10 times higher IOPS to storage ratio - all for the same price as io1. Power-intensive, business-critical SAP applications such as those running on SAP HANA, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and IBM DB2 benefit from the higher uptime of io2.

With the highly resilient io2 volumes, customers can reduce the likelihood of storage failures, which improves the overall availability of applications. io2 volumes also support provisioning a 10x higher IOPS to storage ratio, up to 500 IOPS for each GB provisioned, so customers can provide more performance without increasing their storage spending.

EBS-io2 volumes are generally available in the AWS Regions US East (Northern Virginia), US East (Ohio), US West (Northern California), US West (Oregon), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific ( Hong Kong), Asia-Pacific (Seoul), Asia-Pacific (Singapore), Asia-Pacific (Sydney), Asia-Pacific (Tokyo), Canada (Central), EU (Frankfurt), EU (Ireland), EU (London) , EU (Paris), EU (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain) and South America (São Paulo).

You can find all details on certification in SAP OSS note 1656250.

Customers can get started with io2 volumes using the AWS Management Console, the AWS CLI, or the AWS SDKs. Customers can either create new io2 volumes or use the Elastic Volume functionality to seamlessly convert their existing EBS volumes to an io2 volume without disrupting their applications.
